Twentieth Century Thinkers in Adult Education by Peter Jarvis

The theory of adult education has been developed in the 20th century by a number of philosophers. This book reviews 13 major figures, and demonstrates their contributions to the field. Beginning with a general section on the development of adult educational knowledge, the following chapters explore the ideas of such thinkers as Paulo Freire, John Dewey, Ettore Gelpi and Malcolm S.Knowles. Each chapter is constructed around a similar framework and the theory is assessed in detail. Peter Jarvis' concluding chapter offers a comparison of the different figures and asks whether the study of adult education constitutes a discipline.
